Just for Fun - Inchies

This year is just racing away its May! and time for change at Just for Fun.   We had a lot of fun with shapes in April, now it is Neet's turn to set the challenges and she is giving us a month of size.   Neet's theme for May is 'Size Matters!'

For the first challenge the theme is Inchies.   Those little one inch squares, that you can do so much with.   I made up a master board using Kakeidacolor 'Calypso' and lots of stamps with faces or facial features on them.    Using a one inch square punch, punched out lots of little squares.   The bookmark is Grunge paper coloured with DI trimmed at the bottom with a traditional fringe and the shape marked with gold leaf pen.   The inchies were then tried and retried until a pleasing layout came together.

You can do anything you want with your inchie(s) so please do join in and let us see what you do.

  10. Zoe, you did me proud with this. I was so chuffed when I first saw it - that eye certainly draws you in. Love how you kept to facial features - clever thinking.
